Synthetic Marijuana Testing

Picture a small, unsanitized lab with someone who’s clearly not a professional concocting substances that will make them money at the risk of the health and safety of others. Their product goes by many names. Also known as club or designer drugs, synthetic drugs are growing in popularity and raising serious concerns.

The DEA has been working since 2011 to outlaw synthetic marijuana and variants. However, the Internet has made it easy for them to be obtained secretly. Furthermore, once the DEA creates regulations, manufacturers will get around the rules by switching up the chemical compounds.

What is Synthetic Marijuana?

Marijuana is a naturally-occurring substance. Synthetic marijuana, on the other hand, is created using chemicals. While the effects of use may mimic those of traditional marijuana, they are often more intense and even dangerous. Synthetic marijuana users have found themselves in the emergency room, in comas, and even dead as a direct result of use.
